Medium intensity ruby in colour with a pink hint at the rim. The nose shows good aromatic intensity with aromas of fresh wild berries and liquorice which are well integrated with the sweet spice aromas from the barrel ageing process.
The palate is soft and marked by silky tannins and a long, fruity finish.
This Reserva uses grapes from CVNE's vineyards in Rioja Alta, which are carefully selected and hand harvested.
The grapes were fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel vats. Following full malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in American and French oak barrels for 18 months.
During the aging it acquired the traditional notes from both types of wood.
After clarifying naturally, the wine was bottled and placed in CVNE's underground cellars where it continued to evolve and refine for a minimum of 18 months until being released to the market.
Roast lamb, but also great with othergrilled and roasted red meats, pizza/pasta, casseroles/stews, mild creamy cheeses, mature strong cheeses.
